After my daughter got a RWI (Recreational Water Illnes) in Feb, drs had no idea how to treat, CDC had no recommendations (yes! I spoke w/ the CDC!!) I found myself at our local Herb Shoppe. I have since treated everything my family gets w/ natural remedies. Hear my heart, I am 100% for modern meds when required. After reading your post, here are my STRONG recommendations....all can be purchased at a local health/herb shoppe.
Please know that i am NOT in the health biz, herb biz. I AM a mom and wife and women that choose to get educated more and take control over my family's health to the best of my ability. I pray that these suggestions help. PLS contact me if you have questions. :-)
You can get ALL of this for around $50+/- and TRUST ME it is worth every penny!! We have not been to a doctor (other than that lake parasite) for an illness in 2 yrs - me, my hubby, nor our 2yo!
Silver Shield Liquid - Get rememdy sheet showing how that one product can be used for at least 30 different medical challenges (from fungus on feet to belly ache to ears and more!) Take as sheet will direct.
Nasal/Sinus Issues (from allergies, virus, cold, etc) - Get Xylitol Nasal Spray. A natural sugar that "attracts the sinus bugs" and when you blow after spray the bugs go to - NOT just the wet gunk. Follow up w/ a 1/2 spray of Silver Shield (put in spray bottle and keep handy for future)
Stomach Issues - Get (specific line for kids) Digestive Enzyme Powder. Give as directed per wt of kid/adult. Rebuilds the lost enzymes from vomiting, etc. Most kids lose 25% during an illness; my daughter had lost nearly 90% (shown in blood work). Literally takes a sprinkle a day for X days. The difference is amazing!!! (She had lost 2 lbs in a few days until we started this product!!)
Sick at all (kids/adults) - Bifadolphis probiotic (aka BIF). Take 1 cap 2X/day while symptomatic. It replaces and/or replinishes what good bacteria was stripped away during illness. THIS is the only one that DOES not counteract w/ antibiotics. The one most ppl take and talk about is Acidolphis - which is in yogurt, etc THAT counteracts antibiotics; and yogurt hurts a belly ache (i.e. dairy product)
ADULTS: Feeling yuck, kids have yuck, been exposed to yuck - Olive Leaf Extract (nature's antibiotic that gets to the source, not stripping u of good bacteria) Take 1 3X/day for 7-10 days.
EARS: Every time our 2yo gets out of a water source (tub, shower, pool, etc)we put one drop of TOPICAL EAR AID in each year. A garlic based herb product. She had 2 ear infections in a month.... none since we used this!
